This section will help you fulfill the Five Freedoms by preventing disease incidence and its associated pain, discomfort and distress

 

We can literally save lives with careful and effective cleaning and disinfection which represents the cornerstone of our biosecurity program.

  • Because of its importance for animal health, cleaning and disinfection should be approached systematically, with the development and implementation of specific protocols.
  • Absence of disease saves time, money and lives.
  • Cleaning can also be stressful for the animals. We must take appropriate measures to reduce this stress. See sample of cleaning protocol for cat cages that also includes using spot cleaning.
